I have two new loves in my life:
Philly Cooking Creme!
The suggested serving size is 1/4 c:
Cals: 110, Protein: 4g, Carbs: 3g, Fat: 9g
But since we all know that when dieting, you can't always give away 110 calories on something if it doesn't fit in with your meal plan. SO! What happens since there are days where I'm really needing my dinner chicken breast to be tasty, check it out if you break it down a little:
For 1 tbsp: Cals: 27.5, Protein: 1g, Carb: 0.75g, Fat: 2.25g (Seriously, 1 tablespoon can satisfy so much)
For 1 tsp: Cals: 9.16, Protein: 0g, Carb: 0g, Fat: 0.75g
They come in 4 flavors: Savory Garlic, Original, Santa Fe Blend, and Italian Herb & Cheese.
My Other Love:
1 tbsp Cals: 120, Prot: 0g, Carb: 0g, Fat: 14g BUT! The flavor of it is incredible! It isn't sweet whatsoever and the flavor is subtle but makes a huge difference in the overall flavor.
It looks like this when you try to scoop it out, so don't let that phase you...
I will go into the nutrition aspect of this stuff in my next blog because honestly, its too much to list in this post! :)
Stay Tuned In Next Week for... Fat Doesn't Always Make You Fat!
Side Note: I'm on Day 4 of my Yoga Challenge... The last couple days have been a roller coaster! I keep getting little muscle twinges in my high stress muscles (right side back) but I think they'll work themselves out as I continue. Stress has become less, so I'm certain they will. :) But its fun seeing the changes my body makes, it is definitely a ton of core work and lower ab activation. My quads are very sore from certain postures and surprisingly, my triceps are sore from activation.
Last night in class I got into a conversation with myself regarding missing lifting this week. But the more I went along, the more I realized why this is so necessary. Maybe others in the figure arena do not feel this way (totally fine!) but I realize that with a pre-existing injury (like my broken back) that doing everything to take care of my muscles is essential. The static stretching, compression, and extension is so important to make sure I do not exacerbate any existing issues in my body and more importantly, do not create any new ones. Yoga is essential to my weight lifting.
